The holding furnaces are fitted with burners operating with air or oxygen as oxidisers. Oxyfuel burner systems exhibit higher thermal efficiency and other advantages over cold air burner systems, such as:
Higher combustion efficiency
Higher melting rate
Faster heating-up times
Lower fuel consumption
Higher processing temperatures possible
Faster reaction speeds
Lower exhaust gas levels
Lower production costs
